Corporate Overview

Since 1994 CROMSOURCE has been supporting our clients with outstanding clinical research and staffing solutions services. The successful growth of CROMSOURCE has been achieved by putting high quality and client focus at the heart of everything we do.

At CROMSOURCE we live by our motto – Advise Agree Deliver. This means we leverage our experience and expertise at the early stages of discussions with our clients to freely advise them on the optimal project plan. We then reach agreement with each client on the scope of service, timelines and budget. CROMSOURCE then commit to deliver those services on time and within budget – according to our End-to-End Guarantee. Our commitment to guaranteed delivery is unique in the clinical research environment which is otherwise notable for the routine occurrence of delays and cost overruns.

Acting through Pharmaceutical, Medical Device and Staffing Solutions teams, and with a comprehensive portfolio of services, we offer a flexible approach to ensure CROMSOURCE optimally support the unique needs of each client. This could mean providing regulatory consultancy to a small company at the early stages of a medical device development programme, through to provision of full services to a pharmaceutical company performing an international megatrial to support registration of their product. Whatever the size and scope of the project, each receives the same level of attention to detail and commitment to delivery of a high quality service within budget and to timelines agreed.

History

CROMSOURCE has a rich history dating back to 1994 and the founder, Oriana Zerbini MD, continues at the helm. Our successful growth over the last 20 years has been built on stability, integrity, high levels of customer satisfaction and repeated business. We have grown steadily to become an organisation of over 500 experts with offices across Europe and North America and activities on a global scale. Our commitment to providing the right services to support our clients has seen us at the forefront of developments in the Industry; from pioneering the provision of contract staffing solutions in Northern Europe in the mid-90's to being early adopters of the ISO Quality Management certification in 2000.

CROMSOURCE were also amongst the first CROs to become active in Central & Eastern Europe and Russia fifteen years ago, and continue to have unparalleled local experience in these important regions. More recently, CROMSOURCE led the way again, being the first CRO to provide a ‘One Trial One Price’ fixed budget guarantee in 2011. As a result of our experience and capabilities we have been able to build on this pledge in 2012 to incorporate a fixed timelines pledge – creating our End-to-End Guarantee. In a world where the majority of clinical trials are delayed and over-budget, our clients can concentrate on the bigger picture knowing that their project will be delivered on time and within budget by a partner certified for quality.

Description of a unique characteristics of our facilities

Put simply, One Trial One Price is our unique pledge that the price agreed at contract signature is the only price that the Sponsor will pay. In this way, CROMSOURCE provides our clients with a concrete budget which contrasts markedly with the change order culture prevalent in today’s CRO industry. It is the embodiment of the CROMSOURCE commitment to deliver high quality data to our clients on time and on budget.

CROMSOURCE believes that a rigorous assessment of country and site level feasibility is critical to trial success and must be implemented early in trial planning. Without detailed and accurate feasibility data on which to base country and site selection, a reliable prediction of enrolments rate and therefore successful planning of trial milestones is impossible. If your last trial was delayed by recruitment issues, you may wish to consider the level of detail you were provided with in the feasibility assessment.

Moreover, CROMSOURCE strongly believes in “Quality by Design”: a determination to review from the very beginning all aspects of operations, with a view to proactively identify and prevent quality issues and operational threats rather than relying solely on the ability to react to issues when they arise. A detailed and reliable feasibility analysis is one of the crucial first steps in the process.

For these reasons, CROMSOURCE have developed our unique Feasibility PlusTM approach which is provided without obligation at the RFP stage to potential sponsors. This stringent methodology is the foundation of our ability to deliver our End-to-End Guarantee.

Working closely with our sponsors, CROMSOURCE identifies those geographic areas well known for their prevalence of the targeted indication. All regulatory requirements are then reviewed and timeliness developed for each country to ensure fast regulatory approvals.

CROMSOURCE then works directly with the most professional and productive sites in each geography. Sites are only considered if they have proven they can deliver a combination of high enrolment, high retention, and quality data.

Further, each site is requested to identify potential patients far in advance of study start-up, thus assuring there are no surprises during the enrolment phase.

With the accurate and detailed trial planning data provided by Feasibility PlusTM CROMSOURCE can offer Sponsors a comprehensive End-to-End guarantee, assuring them that their study will be completed on time and on budget with no CRO initiated changes in scope.

Our Feasibility Plus process is such a valuable tool that CROMSOURCE are often requested to assist clients with rescuing trials which are delayed due to poor recruitment. We implement Feasibility Plus as part of our Expert Trial Rescue service.


Is your current trial is running behind schedule, or you would like support from a CRO who are experts in rescuing such studies?

If so, that’s where CROMSOURCE can help.

We’ve been involved in more rescue studies than other CROs have total studies. That’s because we know where the patients are and how to enrol them. We know which countries have the highest prevalence of various diseases and the sites that consistently deliver the highest volume of qualified patients.

And because we monitor competing studies in all major markets we help our sponsors understand the competitive landscape. We then advise them to avoid those countries and re-direct them to markets with the patients needed to finish their study on-time.

Finally, a sponsors rescue study may qualify for our End-to-End Guarantee. If your study meets certain requirements we will guarantee not only the specified number of patients but also the date of database lock.

Now that’s what we feel a study rescue is all about. To ask how we can help bring your study in on-time, click here.


It’s a simple concept, really. Quality data.On time.On Budget. Guaranteed.

At CROMSOURCE we believe experts should keep their word. After 18 years of success in supporting our clients to meet their clinical research goals we have a solid history and experience with highly productive geographies, sites, investigators and regulators. We are so confident in our abilities to deliver your study on time and on budget that we are able to offer the industry’s only End-to-End Guarantee.

Starting at the RFP stage with our uniquely detailed Feasibility PlusTM process (delivered free and without obligation) we ensure that we provide realistic predictions of enrollment and timelines, and recommend the right mix of countries and sites. Our End-to-End Guarantee then covers the following areas:

  1. Your study will start on time
  2. We will enroll 100% of the contracted patients
  3. We will finish on time with a set date for database lock
  4. The price you contracted is the price you pay. There will be no CRO-initiated changes-in-scope.

Furthermore, we know that budgets must be competitive, and you can rest assured that our End-to-End guarantee does not come with a premium price. Don’t you owe it to your project to learn more? Contact us here to request more information.
